ABSTRACT

As part of effort to develop the strategies of internationalization of social science academic journals in South Korea, this study attempts to verify the measurement invariance of journal selection criteria across the groups of library and information science researchers and social science researchers. The authors collected 146 survey responses from researchers who have published at least one paper in SSCI/Scopus-indexed social science journals between 2014 and 2016. As a result of the study, it was found that the configural and partial metric invariance of the journal selection criteria held across the two groups, implying that the model of journal selection criteria is appropriate to use in the field of social science as well as library and information science. Additionally, the authors investigated the perceptions of journal selection criteria indicators in the two groups, and it was shown that researchers in both groups considered peer review and indexing in major databases important. The findings of this study could be useful for publishers or academic societies to develop improvement strategies of their journals.
